    • And of course you begin by out of context quotes. It doesn't matter if 10,000 books by a thousand authors were published on the subject they would all be erroneous. And the fact that a person can argue a point does not make the point, nor the arguments, valid. At best the arguments are illogical and subjective and mainly born of the need to be contrary if they are not based on factual data. In the case of pretib it's an agenda of the enemy, a doctrine of devils; and since the best you can do to defend the idea is to call it an argument with some validity, means it's far from the reality. This is true because pretib ideas are based on supposition, illogic and specious reasoning, not the facts. It's no doubt that none of us have all the truth. The fallible cannot be infallible. Even though we did not write nor inspire the scriptures, this in no way removes the ability to understand those same scriptures through diligence, hard work and prayer. In fact, this is the formula given by God to reach wisdom and understanding of His Word. It's true the OT prophets wrote extensively about the end of the age. In fact I can see the end of the age mentioned in Genesis. While I agree with you in principle in the detail of the writings of the OT prophets and see the same things you do in those details we cannot favor the OT prophets over THE prophet and the one who inspired those prophets, Jesus Christ. Matt 24 sorts out, in a perfect outline the chronology of events of the last week. Any timeline that disputes Jesus own words, under direct questioning of the disciples concerning the end of the age, is incorrect. Jesus own words place the only gathering of the elect mentioned by the One True God as occurring after great tribulation and before the wrath of God, well into the second half of the week. All other end of the age scripture,both OT and NT,  must be understood in light of the Words of Almighty God in Matt 24. Everyone author, blogger, apologist, acolyte and follower of pretrib I have either read or heard purposely ignore Matt 24. And why? It's THE authority on the outline and timing of the last week, even referencing Daniel as support. I suspect it's because Matt 24, and Jesus himself, refutes the claims of pretrib. This is deliberate planning. I even heard a pretrib apologist on this site refer to Matt 24 as 'unimportant'.  Pretrib is a lie. You'll see soon enough.    
    • God's Word clearly and without equivocation 'Christ fulfilled the law'...

    •   If you wanna see Jerusalem as it is now, you might wanna go soon before the start of the tribulation. During the second half of the tribulation, all of Jerusalem will be destroyed. The topography and landscape of the area will be completely altered after the nuclear war. Jerusalem will be lifted up high on a mountain. Should be high enough that Jerusalem will receive snow at times of the year when there's no snow in Israel so water can flow down stream all year round. All the surrounding valleys will be leveled and flatted. The city will also be expanded and larger. Everything will be rebuilt and won't look like what it is now. But if you can't go, here a quick video.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoizSL-TEJQ   Zechariah 14:8-10 New King James Version (NKJV) 8 And in that day it shall be
      That living waters shall flow from Jerusalem,
      Half of them toward the eastern sea
      And half of them toward the western sea;
      In both summer and winter it shall occur.
      9 And the Lord shall be King over all the earth.
      In that day it shall be—
      “The Lord is one,”
      And His name one. 10 All the land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be raised up and inhabited in her place from Benjamin’s Gate to the place of the First Gate and the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses.   Isaiah 40:1-5 New King James Version (NKJV) 40 “Comfort, yes, comfort My people!”
      Says your God.
      2 “Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her,
      That her warfare is ended,
      That her iniquity is pardoned;
      For she has received from the Lord’s hand
      Double for all her sins.” 3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
      “Prepare the way of the Lord;
      Make straight in the desert
      A highway for our God.
      4 Every valley shall be exalted
      And every mountain and hill brought low;
      The crooked places shall be made straight
      And the rough places smooth;
      5 The glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
      And all flesh shall see it together;
      For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”   Isaiah 2:3 New King James Version (NKJV) 3 Many people shall come and say,
      “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
      To the house of the God of Jacob;
      He will teach us His ways,
      And we shall walk in His paths.”
      For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
      And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. There's other scriptures but I'm a little lazy to go dig up the rest.   The new earthly Jerusalem might be similar to the heavenly Jerusalem high on a mountain that John saw when he was in heaven. This I'm not sure, just speculating. Revelation 21:10 New King James Version (NKJV) 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,                                              
    • Especially study  the word betrothed  below and then seek out the customs of the people, the culture, that had asked of Paul and to whom he most directly was answering knowing he was addressing Jesus' church members both formerly Jew and Gentile but now all Christian. 1 Corinthians 7English Standard Version (ESV) Principles for Marriage Now concerning the matters about which you wrote: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.”  But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.  The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband.  For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.  Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. Now as a concession, not a command, I say this. I wish that all were as I myself am. But each has his own gift from God, one of one kind and one of another.  To the unmarried and the widows I say that it is good for them to remain single, as I am. But if they cannot exercise self-control, they should marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion.  To the married I give this charge (not I, but the Lord): the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, she should remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband), and the husband should not divorce his wife. To the rest I say (I, not the Lord) that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he should not divorce her. If any woman has a husband who is an unbeliever, and he consents to live with her, she should not divorce him.  For the unbelieving husband is made holy because of his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made holy because of her husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy. But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace.  For how do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife? Live as You Are Called  Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him. This is my rule in all the churches.  Was anyone at the time of his call already circumcised? Let him not seek to remove the marks of circumcision. Was anyone at the time of his call uncircumcised? Let him not seek circumcision.  For neither circumcision counts for anything nor uncircumcision, but keeping the commandments of God.  Each one should remain in the condition in which he was called.  Were you a bondservant when called? Do not be concerned about it. (But if you can gain your freedom, avail yourself of the opportunity.)  For he who was called in the Lord as a bondservant is a freedman of the Lord. Likewise he who was free when called is a bondservant of Christ. You were bought with a price; do not become bondservants of men.  So, brothers, in whatever condition each was called, there let him remain with God. The Unmarried and the Widowed  Now concerning the betrothed, I have no command from the Lord, but I give my judgment as one who by the Lord's mercy is trustworthy.  I think that in view of the present distress it is good for a person to remain as he is.  Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be free. Are you free from a wife? Do not seek a wife.  But if you do marry, you have not sinned, and if a betrothed woman marries, she has not sinned. Yet those who marry will have worldly troubles, and I would spare you that.  This is what I mean, brothers: the appointed time has grown very short. From now on, let those who have wives live as though they had none,  and those who mourn as though they were not mourning, and those who rejoice as though they were not rejoicing, and those who buy as though they had no goods,  and those who deal with the world as though they had no dealings with it. For the present form of this world is passing away.  I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord.  But the married man is anxious about worldly things, how to please his wife,  and his interests are divided. And the unmarried or betrothed woman is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit. But the married woman is anxious about worldly things, how to please her husband.  I say this for your own benefit, not to lay any restraint upon you, but to promote good order and to secure your undivided devotion to the Lord.  If anyone thinks that he is not behaving properly toward his betrothed, if his passions are strong, and it has to be, let him do as he wishes: let them marry—it is no sin. But whoever is firmly established in his heart, being under no necessity but having his desire under control, and has determined this in his heart, to keep her as his betrothed, he will do well.  So then he who marries his betrothed does well, and he who refrains from marriage will do even better.  A wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord.  Yet in my judgment she is happier if she remains as she is. And I think that I too have the Spirit of God.
    •  Be like the stallion among the mares? Don't think so. Funny picture, the man turning his head away from the one he is with to observe the ways of other creatures, especially horses. Better to be like Paul, but if you do burn with passion better to marry.

      “While you were out playing...” by Abby Joy     ...a little girl went out for a night of "innocent fun" dressed in her princess dress and sparkly slippers. Sure that it is just a night for safe, innocent fun, her parents sent her out into her local neighborhood to knock doors and ask for candy... "Trick or treat!?" 

      But something goes wrong... and she turns up missing. Her parents are frantic! And while you were out playing with evil... eating the devil's candy... dressed up like him and his employees... a little princess goes missing. The neighborhood is in shock! What happened to the little princess?!! 

      And while you were playing church... with your "trunk-or-treats" and Fall festivals... evil rejoices... evil persists... someone misses their little princess... and a nightmare begins.  If only it was make-believe... if only it was just a bad dream...

      ...and evil rejoices. The little princess cries... and then she screams, but it is not a dream... her torture is hideous... her murder is grotesque! The servants of satan revel that night... they take her pieces and hide them in some hay ...and they take a "hay ride" and use it to traumatize their children into deathly silence.

      But it was just a fun night of innocence... while you were out playing with evil, eating satan's candy, dressed up like one of his employees... and a little princess cries... the little princess dies.
